RubyOnRails 1.2 released, with good Unicode support


Yes, I like Ruby as a language, and I like the Rails library. Yesterday Rails 1.2 was released and it have excellent support for Unicode in the UTF-8 encoding.

This imply things like this works:

# cat a.rb
s = "åäö"
print s.first + "\n"
# ./script/runner a.rb
